Interviews with concealed carriers have already aired. They were carrying. And they ran.

And he's right on both of those points. What he leaves out is that they both DESERVE to be blamed.

Now watch walmart do something completely pointless like stop selling guns or ammo.

I do believe that environment can play a factor in someone developing a mental illness. I'm not a psychologist so I won't be deliberating with anyone on how, exactly, that would cause someone to flip and start shooting many innocent people.

I do not disagree with you that some of that could absolutely have a hand in developing a mental illness - when someone has zero coping skills, it can cause their mind to malfunction - I firmly believe that.

By the way, where did you hear that rumor that more Targets and Wal-Marts would be shot up? I'd like to know because something that I do for fun when I'm not working, (although some consider this work) is one of those app jobs that has me doing a lot of people's shopping at Target. I'd prefer not to be shot up in the near future...or the far future, for that matter.
I was at a Target tonight and it was interesting. They had a lot more staff on duty. More security and there were staff placed at the end of various aisles and sections of the store standing there watching people and the aisles.

I always feared this. In many EU terrorist acts, the killers seemed to pick where the largest quantity of people would be.

In America, in terms of soft targets w/o security checkpoints to get through, where are there more people than at Wal Mart?

It would have been better if hed just started a YouTube channel. He obviously wanted people to read his manifesto, and decided the best way to get attention for it was to kill a bunch of people. Why cant the police not release names? Now he got what he wanted, millions of people around the world reading his stupid manifesto.

I used to be anti-immigrant myself...until I started interacting and working with these people...and my mind was completely changed. We NEED these people. They are an essential piece of the fabric in America. We should be making their lives easier here, not harder.
This is so damn true. So damn true.

You didn’t blame Tuesday’s walmart shooting on anyone? You didn’t blame the ice facility attack on anyone?

Donald Trump is held up in the White House waiting for a speech writer to compose a scripted meaningless response. Sad, when the person residing in the White House can't speak intelligently without a teleprompter. I'm not being political, I'm just speaking the TRUTH.
